This is getting philosophical more than practical. We all agree that
tagline+trick is same as explicit, isn't it ? Yes, both obtain what I
want. Now, I can choose tagline and edit the =tagging-method file, or I
can choose explicit directly. I'll stick with explicit. You are welcome to
translate explicit to tagline+file_edit if you like.
